Fruit and vegetable production and consumption in Asia and the Pacific region have shown a marked upward trend over the past several years. Rising consumer demand in the region has come with greater awareness of food safety issues and increased need for convenience and quality. The fresh-cut produce sector has responded to these demands, and is currently at different stages of development across the region.
This study aimed at production of mangosteen juice using mangosteen pericarp as a natural colorant. Furthermore, quality changes of the mangosteen juice during refrigerated storage were investigated. Formula of mangosteen juice was developed based on flavor and color by addition of sucrose and mangosteen pericarp, respectively. Mangosteen juice adjusted to 18º Brix and added with 0.2% mangosteen pericarp obtained the highest sensory scores of quality attributes for flavor, color and overall liking.
